Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Vadra hold a “padayatra” in Amethi
Holding a padayatra in Amethi, Rahul Gandhi attacked the central government on issues such as inflation, demonetization, GST, capitalism and agricultural laws. The Wayanad MP also reiterated his distinction between âHinduâ and âHindutvawadiâ.
Denigrating Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Rahul Gandhi said: âThe Center said it had no data on farmers’ deaths. I showed them a list of 400 Punjabi farmers who died during protests, demanding compensation. Who has benefited from demonetization, the GST and agricultural laws? Only 2 -3 industrialists. “
The Congress leader added that a Hindu is one who does not fear the truth and does not let hatred take over. âHindutvawadi is the one who uses hatred to create fear. Hindus will never lose,â he said.
He said inflation and unemployment are the biggest questions that neither the PM nor the CM will answer. He said that the middle class and the poor are severely affected by the decisions made by the Prime Minister. âEvery way in Amethi is always the same. Only that there is anger against the government in the eyes of the people,â Gandhi said.
